A Kansas mother accused of trying to drown her two young children was on suicide watch a day after being charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder.

Johnna Green made her first appearance on Friday in a brief teleconference in front of Fred Zimmerman, a Kansas City, Kan., attorney serving as a temporary judge.

The 23-year-old mother is accused of attempting to drown her daughters, ages 1 and 4, on Tuesday before calling 911. The girls were taken to University of Kansas Hospital, where they remained in critical condition Friday.

John DeMarco and former Kansas Attorney General Paul Morrison have been hired to represent the family. DeMarco waived a reading of the charges at the hearing Friday and the case was put on a docket for next week.
